On Wednesday, September 6th, the 18th cohort of the Cleveland Small Business Impact Program participated in their culminating showcase event.
This event was a demo-day-style competition where program participants used their new knowledge and skills to present their pitch to a panel of judges for a chance to take home up to $10,000 to grow their business.
In the end, Teressa Johnson of Paws Play was awarded the top prize of $10,000. All other participants received $2,500 in funding.
